How Rock and Roll Helped End the Cold War

An exploration of how American Rock & Roll music spread like an uncontrollable virus across the Iron Curtain in the last half of the 20th century. The film follows this story, and its key players, as radio pumped Rock & Roll into Eastern Europe and the USSR, while inspiring thousands of underground rock bands and millions of supporters who embraced it as the “sound of freedom”. They sparked a revolution that openly defied the communist governments, while contributing to their collapse.
